Lamar Jackson Wants Antonio Brown on the Ravens

Lamar Jackson was spotted working out with Antonio Brown in April, and the reigning MVP is still holding out hope that the troubled but talented wide receiver could join the Baltimore Ravens’ roster. Per Jamison Hensley of ESPN:

Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun added:

I’m gonna go ahead and disagree with Jackson about Brown being a great guy. Nonetheless, his wish depends on a number of factors. Brown repeatedly changes his mind publicly about whether he wants to play in the NFL again or not, and the NFL is thus far refusing to give him any sort of timetable about when he would even be allowed to play again.

From a football perspective, Brown is very volatile, but John Harbaugh and the Ravens have pretty good management systems. The team lacked production at wide receiver last season — no one at the position cracked 600 yards last season. Marquise Brown led wide receivers on the team with 584 yards, and Willie Snead IV was second with 339. (Tight ends Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst had 852 and 349 yards, respectively.)

So, Brown would be an upgrade for the Ravens at his position, but he comes with considerable baggage.

  1. It always strikes me funny that players speak out publicly for guys to join their team when they have teammates who would lose their jobs over it. Like when 49ers were recruiting Adams. Tartt has been a good player for them. What must he think with guys campaigning to replace him?
